March 2011

I’m still recovering from the fabulous festival that Food and Wine put on in Zihuatanejo, but I wanted to get a quick post up because today we were featured on The Wedding Chicks! I full post on Romy and Gavin’s wedding is in the works, but for now check out the Wedding Chicks post for a taste here.

Congratulations Romy and Gavin!

  • Alissa - Jillian – these pictures are amazing! I am obsessed with the bridesmaid dresses and I was wondering if you know or could find out who the designer is? My sister-in-law is getting married on NYE and we have been looking for the perfect one shoulder dress and haven’t been able to find one we like. This dress looks amazing on all of her bridesmaids, but it doesn’t show the designer anywhere on the Wedding Chicks post. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

  • admin - I’m working on it! I will let you know what I hear from Romy.

  • Ria - They look like Amsale.

  • admin - I just heard from Romy. They are Amsale!

The grand performance was last night and there are no words to describe how proud I am of these kids. They worked so hard the past ten days and performed an unthinkable task in putting on a show with such little time for preparation. They rose to the occasion and then some. I’m leaving for California tomorrow so I haven’t had time to go through all of the photos yet, but here is one of my favorites from backstage with the kids. This is Ali. We have the same birthday.

  • tara - Super amazing!

  • Naomi Scott - Have been following your artistry for a while now. Long time regular SP visitors and love to see our puebla of choice thru your photos. Realllly looking forward to your shots of the Circos. Peace.

  • bola - wuau!! que linda foto, como dicen los gueros is amaizing. picture picture.

I’ve been watching these kids grow up for five years now and it’s amazing to see the transition that is happening now. Forty-eight San Pancho children are being trained by Cirque de Soleil for a show this Saturday. In less than a week they have learned to ride unicycles, walk on stilts, walk a tight rope, and more. I was there all last week until I had to go to a wedding in Cabo and when I came back it was incredible. In four days they conquered almost every task. I can only imagine what else they are going to learn before the performance this Saturday.

Here are some of my favorites from last week and yesterday. There will definitely be more.
